Here’s Great Tip: The Jazz of Entrepreneurs | Quiana Lynell | TEDxLSU


Here is Something You Should See…


Everyone is good at something, but do we all have to be good at everything? In this talk performance, singer Quiana Lynell demonstrates that when you surround yourself with individuals navigating greatness (SWING), you begin to trust in the skills of the people around you and let your own talent shine more brightly.

Vocalist, songwriter, teacher and storyteller Quiana Lynell’s career is a testament to her belief in the positive and unifying power of music, combined with a hearty dose of diligence and preparation. The LSU School of Music graduate operates with the tagline “I trained for this” and whether she’s referring to her role as founder of the health and wellness group Musicians Run or her ability to leverage her classically trained voice to perform in multiple genres, Quiana demonstrates exactly that. Quiana arranges, performs and composes a variety of musical styles including jazz, soul, blues and funk. She can be found throughout the region and nationally collaborating on cross-genre performances, among them with various artists at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and with the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra as their principal Soprano. The former band director currently finds time between collaborations to teach prospective vocalists at Loyola University, cultivating students’ understanding of process and technical components to more effectively serve the potential of their art and instrument.
